Bridal Hair and Make Up

You are scared that you're going to look like a clown... 

For a lot of people (me included) having your make-up done can be a daunting thought. You may have had a bad past experience or your worried because you don't normally wear much make-up and your don't want to look "over done" especially on your wedding day. You may have a certain way that you like to do your eyebrows and no one, not even Beyonce's make up artist herself, could do them better than you. We get that. We understand that you are used to what you see when you look in the mirror and most importantly we want you to feel like you on your wedding day - just the most beautiful version of you that you could possibly be! 

Confidence breeds beauty
— Estee lauder

Thats what makes us a little different... 

Our passion isn't rooted in what make-up makes you look like its about how it makes you feel.  We understand that make-up is subjective and that everyone has different preferences and opinions. Our aim is to empower you so you walk, no, glide up the aisle brimming with confidence (and therefor beauty). We see make up as an extension of you and who your are, not a mask for you to hide behind. Our approach is to guide you rather than impose and we do this by listening to your preferences and looking at your ideas so that we can use our skills and expertise to create a bridal look that is not only beautiful but unique, elegant and timeless yet modern.

Your journey  


Prior to the trial we consult with you to get some background information about yourself and the style of your wedding. We welcome telephone calls and building a relationship to you is a key element in our process. We want you to feel comfortable in our company and you are at the heart of our service. At the trial itself we will elaborate on any ideas or concerns you may have before creating your bridal look using products or techniques that are tailored to your needs and skin type.  Trials are held mid week due to our commitments and focus with bridal parties at weekends.  


We believe that communication is the key to a happy relationship so we are always on the end of a line. We will communicate with you sereral times before your wedding day.  Sometimes to give you helpful information, sometimes just to check in and see how it is all going. We also like to give you a quick call the week of your wedding just to double confirm details and for any last minute details or questions. Our clients also have their own dedicated portal where all your details such as invoice, booking details etc are all in one place. We also have a couple of other top secret methods for sharing information... Planning a wedding is daunting and over-whelming so we will be with you throughout the journey even if it is just to reassure you that we are still on the planet. 


On the wedding day itself we will travel to your chosen location with our fully mobile set up at the time confirmed with yourself (hair usually takes around 1 hour and make-up 45mins) If you have booked both hair and make up then there will be a designated artist for each. As we have a team of both hair and make-up artists we can accomodate larger parties or earlier ceremonies without you having to be up at the crack of dawn.  We also offer a complimentary dressing service so can help you with those teeny buttons (we carry a crochet hook!) or corset back and will stay with you for as long as you require our assistance.

Love Letters 

Sophie was brilliant - such a professional set up in terms of her website and communication, I felt at ease immediately. It was all completely relaxed and friendly on the day - and I LOVED my makeup on the day. I had a lot of comments that it was very ‘me’! My hair was also great, really the style I was going for. Would highly recommend!

I had the pleasure of having Sophie do my wedding make up on Saturday. What a fantastic friendly girl she is and I could not recommend her more. We were all beyond happy with our make up which lasted through our very wet ceremony and very energetic dancing in the evening! I only wish I lived closer so I could have her do my make up all the time! Thanks so much again Sophie
— Rachel Lawrence - Facebook
Sophie and Iliana did hair and makeup for my wedding last Saturday and what a fantastic job they both did! Both hair and make up stayed put all day and all night. Nothing was too much trouble and Sophie spent time making sure all 5 of us were 100% happy with our makeup. The end result was absolutely stunning. We all loved it. Thank you so much, highly recommended x

Highly recommended! I had two trials at make up counters where I get most of make up/skin care products before booking in with Sophie. Not only did they take over an hour but I felt completely overdone. I told Sophie what I wanted and within half an hour she created the perfect look for my wedding. On the day my make up was fantastic, I loved the lashes, something I’m not used to wearing but received so many compliments on how natural they looked!
If you’re looking for a make up artist whether it be for a wedding or a night out then book Sophie! If I didn’t live in Manchester I would definitely book Sophie again!
Thank you again Sophie Alexis, you helped make my perfect wedding day!

Sophie is amazingly talented, very friendly and really easy to talk to. The girls and I were so happy with the job she did on my wedding day. I wish you could do my make up everyday. Thank you so much, I will be recommending you to everyone! X

Amazing at what she does!!! Had the pleasure of working with Alexis and have only good things to say about her work! Chantal from Reflections Photography by Chantal Lachance-Gibson

There are no words to express how great Sophie was! Sophie and Kelly (hair) were amazing from start to finish. Sophie did my make up for 5 of us on my wedding day (29th July 2017). Neither my mum or my husband’s mum wear make-up very often and they felt completely at ease with Sophie who worked with them to create a very natural look. The make-up lasted all day and still looked as good as it did at 8am - thank you so much :) Sophie is super organised and has a stash of items which brides may have forgotten, thanks again for our straws - saved us a lippy disaster!
